Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in spirit, for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.

Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Matthew 5:3-12

Oh Lord,

Teach me to seek You and reveal yourself to me when I seek You.

For I cannot seek You unless You first teach me, nor find You unless You first reveal yourself to me.

Let me seek You in longing, and long for You in seeking.

Let me find You in love, and love You in finding.

Yesterday, after I spent the morning pleading with Ambrose to take a nap (and getting extremely frustrated with this cycle: nurse to sleep, lay down, wake up, scream, repeat), I finally got him to sleep on my bed....
Poor guy has a cold and a nasty cough. I can only imagine that he feels pretty crummy. He does, however, smell like eucalyptus oil, which I think is heavenly.

Of course, he then slept for over three hours and I was totally missing him by the time he got up. Funny how that is. It was nice to get the house cleaned, though.

He's changing so much lately--and getting so mobile! He rolls or scoots to get around, and is constantly reminding me that I need to start moving important things off the floor & bottom shelves. And that I need to vacuum.

He can sit up on his own for a moment or two, and I'm thinking I'll start giving him some solid food to try out in the next couple weeks. Should make for some good pictures. :-) Oh, and he weighs 19 1/2 lbs.

All that is to say, life is pretty uneventful right now. And that's okay.

Before you give him solids you should figure out what is in your milk. You wouldn't want him to lose any of his monstrous weight from switching to "real" food. !!
